Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #412

Hello friends! I have two blog posts today.... For Altenew post, please click here.

Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the For A Special Lady/Girl Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

a Bit O' Green

 We are using Taylored Expressions products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-) 

This lovely Kaleidoscope Embossing Folder reminded me of a lace dress!
I used a piece of white foam (yes, the foam in your stash) and used 6 shades of green and lightly applied to the dry-embossed card stock. 

you are the sweetest (SSS)-001

The flowers were die cut from TE Bloomers 1 Die.
 For the glitter, I applied Silver Glitter Nuvo Droplets with an old paint brush. The sentiment (from Sweet Cake) was white embossed.

you are the sweetest (close up)  
I really love the GREEN result, do you?

I think TE embossing folders are some of the best! Love your beautiful shading of this one, Virginia! As always, a colorful design!

Mel said...

Beautiful! Did you apply ink direct from pad, or use a blender or shader?

Beautiful... the colors on your embossed background are amazing! Would love to see a video showing how you created such a neat, perfect result. I always make such a mess when I try something like this. Thanks for the inspiration to try again!
